The first widespread Open Source Hardware platform.
Arduino, the first widespread Open Source Hardware platform, was launched in 2005 to simplify the process of electronic prototyping. It enables everyday people with little or no technical background to build interactive products. The Arduino ecosystem is a combination of three different elements, including a small electronic board that makes it easy and affordable to learn to program a microcontroller, a free software application used to program the board, and a vibrant community. Every day on the website thousands of people connect with other users, ask for help, engage and contribute to the project. ARTIK joins the exclusive list of Arduino Certified processors that are compatible with the Arduino ecosystem. ARTIK can be programmed utilizing the Arduino Software Development Environment (IDE), and ARTIK developers can tap into the Arduino community for ideas, insights and best practices. Arduino integration brings the open ARTIK platform into the hands and minds of makers, hobbyists and first-time programmers, who can join developers in discovering new possibilities for the Internet of Things.
